OUT STEALING HORSES follows 67-year-old Trond, an Oslo professional grieving the recent death of his wife. In the winter of 1999, Trond moves to the remote woods of eastern Norway to live out the remainder of his years, in what he hopes will be a quiet, solitary retirement. A chance encounter with his only neighbor, Lars, rekindles dormant memories, as Trond realizes that he knew Lars back in the summer of 1948–the summer Trond turned 15, the summer Trond grew up. Filmed in the midst of a breathtaking landscape of mountains and rivers between Norway and Sweden, Hans Petter Moland unfolds a drama about love, loss and disappointment, lifelong traumas and feelings of guilt, based on the bestselling novel by Norwegian author Per Petterson.

“An ambitious film that examines memory and consciousness through the perspective of an older man who’s determined to escape from memory and to constrict his lived experience.” – Glenn Kenny, NEW YORK TIMES

“A hugely accomplished meditation on life, guilt, and responsibility.” – Deborah Young, HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
